@coops Probably by speaking about my health problems I was aggravating my case, I really don't like to speak about that but I feel that I have to,
I don't know if is an pneumonia or what but is certainly not amusing at all;
I am glad to feel a bit better today
and I am glad you take the time to look to what I did this morning and to comment ,
I am sorry that I am not able to look to all the posts that come along in the Forum and comment but I still look at your posts ,
I think , with the new ArtRage everybody have many changes in what is doing and everybody have a lot of work in front of him.
More I discover the new tools and possibilities more the ideas come,
I hope that in time it will became also more stable, I like the new soft but I know that it have to be much better and I hope that it will be .
Until then I try to discover the new tools !:):):)

@ Alexandra I am glad you give a look to my doodles and that you like the colors,
I work actually on a small screen and for my vision I need the colors to be bold, is not necessarily the best .

I show my trying like other people , I think that is good because it can give eventually ideas to the possibilities in there which are actually really very huge !!!
Thank you Alexandra to take the time to comment,
I try my best to make me healthy as soon as possible, I have to .

I like your work and the way you think .:):):)

I haven't messed with the gloop pen, but looks like I should give it a go based on your images. Very nice.

Dany, these are all so whimsical, inventive and fun. You're making great use of the gloop pen - that thing is infinitely versatile. I do love your bold colors and the expressions in your imaginative forms. Terrific exercises and thanks for posting them.

Meanwhile, very much I hope you're feeling better soon. Sending good vibes your way. :)

@ DMerchen, shechat, pai, byroncallas, orianelima, thank you for your comments and wishes for good health,
indeed, yesterday I was able to get out of my house for few hours after few days of staying inside and extremely ill the three days of the week,
I get in the cold and felt like is less cold as inside, weird isn't it ?!
I get some new medicine to the pharmacy and to day I feel a little better,
I hope the worst of it is behind me.

I had to give now few details :
first picture : I used one of MrPaint's papers for a try, the cold gray blue gos very well for a winter time, used the crayon which bring out the grain and make eventually think to the snow , I used a watercolor tool mainly the dry brush with a more compact impact than the standard one to make some link between the colors and mainly use all the range of one color which is a deep yellow in saturated ranges, looks like almost pink somewhere in the middle clear and like green earth in the middle dark colors, it was fun to work with one color and have so many different shades.
I like it to Pai, Thanks :)

The second one was discovering how to create little windows with the gloop tool.

The third one was how to bring a hill or whatever else natural or unnatural object across different layers of gloops , from the back to the front of the canvas, is very discrete because is lighted with airbrush a little but is just a small idea .

The 4th, that I like it too, it was making little windows with gloops and painting inside each one with almost the same watercolors and link them somehow also. Another small idea.

The last one , I was thinking to Monet as all this year I work on this subject and with the snow it came to my mind his beautiful snow landscapes and did my little imaginary one with some gloops windows and the landscape who came out from the canvas just a little bit.

I have to specify that the "bold colors" are from one of my favorites color palettes , The Old Holland colors, that I did it and you may have it also.

I don't know how it work on printing , anyway I wouldn't print this doodles, wouldn't I :rolleyes::):p:) but I will be soon fixed with how this palette works on the printing work, but I will try to pay attention and verify at maximum the colors, still ? I thing , the printing problem is not easy thing to do and to obtain especially for a colorist as I may be involuntarily eventually maybe :D:o:confused::):)

You see today I get better, Thank you :):):):)

Dany, these are all just beautiful and truly from the heart. It's hard to imagine you being able to do this and with being so sick! I guess your creative mind simply just overcomes feeling sick...good for you. I really do appreciate you taking the time and explaining your thoughts and processes behind each painting. It makes it so much more meaningful! I hope you get better quick!!! :)
